Sean is very involved in his community and state and served as a volunteer firefighter in Evergreen for 22 years and still serves as a National Ski Patroller at Winter Park Resort. Sean is also very involved in non-profits and government, serving on the Jefferson Center for Mental Health board, the State Emergency Medical and Trauma Advisory Council, the Colorado Commission on Aging, and most recently as one of the nine members appointed by Governor Polis to the Colorado Secure Savings Plan Board, which was tasked with providing a recommendation to the 2020 Colorado Legislature about a state-facilitated retirement plan for the roughly 50% of Coloradans who do not have access to a workplace savings plan. Sean was then appointed to a four-year term on the follow-on Colorado Secure Savings Program Board which is tasked with implementing those recommendations. Sean serves as the vice-chair alongside the chair, State Treasurer Dave Young.

Sean also enjoys extended time in the backcountry and in August of 2019 and August of 2020 spent 12 days riding his mountain bike from Waterton Canyon to Durango on the 500+ mile length of the Colorado Trail.
